Just don’t coddle me. I am not a child. I am a grown adult and I take responsibility for my actions, for my livelihood, and for my future. I am not offended at something I don’t agree with and I am not going to need the security Blanket that is known as safe spaces because come on people get real, grow up and realize its ok to not agree with someone and to get offended. we still need to treat each other with respect. Too many people are “triggered”, or so offended they lose all rational thought and argument and it becomes only my feelings matter and yours don’t because you said something I don’t like or didn’t want to hear. We are living in a time where emotion trumps logic and reason. This is how my two-year-old acts! It seems the system has failed to produce good contributing members to society and instead has given us coddled children that can’t handle being an adult. Not everyone deserves a medal for participation, and nobody is entitled to anything they didn’t work for. For those of us that don’t need to be coddled, keep going strong because hopefully just like the terrible twos this too shall pass. Rant over
What is grey when it isn’t a color?
Is it a feeling?
Or how about a space in the middle?
Does it define the undefinable?
and put into place the things that have no place?
Maybe it is a mood?
Or a taste?
It is not appetizing to see on your food.
and can make people walk on eggshells.
A grey life sounds quite grey.
and my hair is starting to turn,
I just want something better. I want something better for my family. I don’t want just some ordinary 9 to 5 lifestyle. Life is too short for that. I want to always be improving my standard of living and I don’t want to slide back and I sure as hell don’t want to stagnate. The ordinary robs us of our true joy, we are not some machine that is supposed to repeat the same thing over and over. We are meant to have extraordinary lives. To experience the greatness and beauty this world has to offer.
It doesn’t help that we was media that only wants to report what is popular, what ultimately will make them the most money no matter hoeuch they have to exaggerate and twist the truth. It makes me sick, I just want to leave it all behind. People are blinded by media, and their view forced on us, and it turns us against each other. It causes us to divide and causes strife. I am heartbroken for my daughter that this is the work she is coming into. Thinking about it drive Spike in my heart. I just hope that she can be better than the rest of the world and have a positive impact in our society. Rant over.
Do you ever make plans just to see them Unravel? You get everything in order and all of the sudden you find yourself picking up pieces from the floor. It seems like nothing you do works out how you want it. Let me tell you something though. What Ever it is, it will only be temporary. Want to know something else? It happens to everyone at some point. The cause? It is called being human. we tend to put a lot of expectation on ourselves and the expectation is much higher than perfection. We were not made to be perfect in any way because that is what makes us unique. We have different experiences that shape us and our character that gives us our individuality which makes each one of us one of a kind.
The beauty of life isn’t that things run like clockwork. It isn’t a flawless existence either. There is beauty in being unique. There is beauty in something that has been unraveled. When you unravel something it can have two meanings. I have already mentioned the first. It means to undo. The second means to take apart to discover, or something that has come undone to reveal a plan or plot. Both are closely related and both can have a positive or negative light. I believe that beauty lies in nakedness. Not just physical nakedness but emotional as well. Being naked in both senses shows you trust the company you are in because you are at your most vulnerable, yet I believe it can be your most powerful moment. You see being naked requires much more than to be naked, it takes courage, trust, and strength. You have the courage to get naked, you trust that no harm will come to you, and you have the strength to keep going in your nakedness.
How does nakedness relate to being unraveled? If you have to take apart something for discovery’s sake, then wouldn’t you get naked to find out who you are?
Happiness. Is it something that is reflected off the surface, or does it shine from the inside? Is it something given, or is it earned? Can you achieve it or does happiness find you? Let me tell you that it can be one of these things or all of them. Happiness isn’t confined to one obtainable source, and not everyone is lucky enough to stumble upon it, but there is something that everyone can do to provide it to someone else.
Happiness can be generated by ourselves by what we achieve, and the gifts we give. It can come as a realization of contentment or in pursuit of your dreams. It can come from a spouse, a friend, a child, or even an enemy. It can come from a game, a job, a place, a car or any other object, but it isn’t where it comes from that matters. What matters is where it goes.
Lives are changed by happiness. When we are happy we feel like we are on top of the world, that nothing can bring us down, that we are Champions. We are on a euphoric high that can be very contagious. Happiness is something that we all should strive to share, to create. We do have to be careful though because happiness can consume, and cripple. If we let someone else’s happiness get in the way of our own, we start to lose our own happiness. We have to know when enough is enough and when to focus on ourselves. Happiness requires balance.
The Cusp is transitional in nature.
It rides the fence between two opinions.
It is the point right before a decision is made to change direction.
It is the top of the roller coaster before the first drop.
It can be the height of excitement,
and the source of anxiety.
Being on it can leave you in suspense,
and for some it means resolution to a past.
Some break through it,
Some fall short.
All have been at some point
on the cusp.
Can we show a little more love?
Can we show a little more compassion?
Aren’t we all human?
Are we not all People?
Since when do my feelings have more validity than yours?
Why can’t we all just work together?
Work together for a better future.
Selfishness is the death of this life.
It drains everything around us.
The earth is a selfless giver.
Even through all the abuse, it still gives unrelenting.
Why are we okay with this?
We can see the end but we do not change course.
We are sucking the life out of this planet.
Who is Earth’s advocate?
Who will support the Earth when it cannot support itself?
We will wither and die that day.
Who is thinking of the future?
The future outside our own lives?
